En consejo de instituto del día 5 de marzo de 2021, se ha aprobado el calendario electoral para la convocatoria de elecciones al claustro del consejo del instituto de aquellos colectivos con representante: el colectivo de PAS y el de personal investigador en formación (no doctor), con un representante cada uno.
The University of Alicante has participated in the creation of Calpech, a new technology-based company (TBF), which has developed a method that makes the industrial manufacture of encapsulated iron nanoparticles from olive industry waste economically viable.
The first company is Fych Solutions, whose proposal is to reduce the amount of plastic that is sent to landfill by the use of innovative technology to recover materials that currently cannot be recycled, improve the quality of recycled plastic, increase its market and contribute to the circular economy.
The second company, Solublion, aims to put new biopolymeric materials on the market that can be used in the manufacture of new plastic products, with similar functionalities that conventional plastics, but with the added advantage of being biodegradable, compostable and water-soluble, decomposing spontaneously in ecosystems.
A mask that purifies the air you breathe and also cleanses the air you breathe out. And the most important thing in these times, that it would avoid having to reduce the capacity indoors. This is what has patented the professor of the Chemical Process Engineering UI of the University of Alicante (UA) Antonio Marcilla.
Two projects in which IUIPQ researchers participate have been awarded in the 9th edition of the Impulso Awards convened annually by the University of Alicante and the Alicante Science Park Foundation. The jury has selected the Solublion project by Daniel Domene López, Ignacio Martín Gullón, Juan Carlos García Quesada and Mercedes García Montalbán. In addition, it has been awarded Fych Technologies, promoted by Andrea Cabanes, Oksana Horodytska and Andrés Fullana. Congratulations to our colleagues (all of them IUIPQ researchers).
A research group of the University Institute of Chemical Process Engineering, led by the researcher Pedro Varó, will analyze the biodigestion processes produced in the CETRA biogas plant (waste management plant of Alicante).
The research group will monitor the operation of the anaerobic digester, a large hermetic container where bacteria ferment organic waste in the absence of oxygen, producing methane gas from renewable source in the process.
Researchers from the University of Alicante Research Group in Waste Management, Energy, the Environment and Nanotechnology (REMAN) have developed a technology for the elimination of odours in plastic materials recycled by steam distillation. This innovation increases the reuse of plastics from domestic and industrial waste as raw material for later use.
This welcome manual, approved at on April 2, 2019, includes general aspects of the I.U. of Chemical Process Engineering and the University of Alicante and is based on specific resources on the UA's institutional website in its most general aspects
On January 28, 2019, for the commemorative acts of Santo Tomás de Aquino, Prof. Ignacio E. Grossmann will be proclamed as a honorary doctorate from the University of Alicante Chemical Engineering Department de Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, EE.UU.). (more information here)
